MOTOR SPORT: Alex Brundle has joined United Autosport’s LMP2 team for the 2019 European Le Mans Series and, pending entry confirmation, the Le Mans 24 Hours.

Brundle first raced for the team in 2016 when they made their European Le Mans Series debut. 

After scoring three wins and two further podiums, he was crowned 2016 ELMS LMP3 Champion alongside Mike Guasch and Christian England. 

Brundle also raced in the Sebring 12 Hours last year, standing in for Bruno Senna, finishing fifth in the Ligier JS P217 with Phil Hanson and Paul Di Resta. 

Brundle, who joins the team alongside Ryan Cullen, said: “I’m very excited and motivated to be racing with United Autosports in LMP2 for 2019, re-joining the team who took me to the championship title in LMP3. 

“I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of a Ligier once more, representing a world-class outfit and my long-standing sponsors and friends at Richard Mille.”
